We went with a large group of friends and family and had a 7 course meal. We enjoyed appetizers, fresh bread, salads, main course of chicken parmesan, salmon, and ice cream. I may be missing something but we had so much food and it was good! I don't remember the waitress name but she was blonde and fit. She was... More

I can say this is the best Italian restaurant around. I absolutely love the Fried Calamari and my favorite dish is the Chicken Francese. I love the Spaghetti and Meatballs as well. My wife and I go there about once a month. We thoroughly enjoy it but be careful because you should get a reservation sometimes if you walk up... More

For anyone with Celiac this is absolutely THE BEST! For those of us without it is equally excellent. The special pasta with leeks is amazing as are numerous other dishes on the menu. Leisurely meal, never rushed, with friendly staff and always with a visit from the family. When we lived in the area this was a regular stop and... More

Sorry folks...but meh. I love Italian food and when I come to eat at an Italian trattoria, I expect great authentic Italian food not whatever is on sale off the shelf of your local grocery supermarket. OK....so with that said, let's begin. The bruschetta was delicious. The parmesan cubes were also delicious. The Italian bread was warm -- and nice... More

The entire dessert menu is GF - tiramisu!!! They even brought out two warmed dinner rolls before our apps - they were so yummy. What... More

...and I'm talking about family visiting from Boulder, CO and Washington, DC who never miss an opportunity to dine here. Everyone has a favorite---spaghetti Puttanes daughter; the clam sauce for the other; and the fusilli with sausage Bolgnese for me. And although there's a newly added menu of diverse desserts, I'll split the Tartuffo with anybody! The chef/owner and his... More
